Trade unions gear up for strike-Latest news

The District Joint Action Committee of Trade Unions and Service Organisations has sought the cooperation and participation of all workers in the 24-hour protest on September 2 (Wednesday).

It also sought the support of the Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh, an affiliate of the RSS, which has withdrawn from the nationwide strike.

Addressing a news conference here on Monday, district convener P.T. Rajan and CITU State vice president T.P. Ramakrishnan said the strike would begin from midnight of September 1 and would conclude at midnight on September 2. Essential services such as water, electricity, milk supply, pharmacies and hospitals, media, and Haj pilgrims had been exempted from the strike.

The protest is not against the Centre but to change its current policies such as stringent anti-labour laws and foreign investment in defence, insurance, and railways. Workers, teachers, employees of the State, Central government departments, quasi-government departments, and banks would take part in the strike.

Mr. Ramakrishnan said the Indian Labour Conference had demanded a minimum wage of Rs.15,000 a month for workers even in the unorganised sector, implementation of social security schemes for workers, and Street Vendors (Protection of Livelihood and Regulation of Street Vending Act.

BMS flayed

He flayed the BMS for withdrawing from the strike on flimsy grounds and that too based on a statement of Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. The Centre had not come to any agreement with the trade unions as propagated by the BMS leadership.

The BMS, which had previously participated in all the protests, had succumbed to the pressure tactics of the Centre and the RSS, Mr. Ramakrishnan said.

He said the strike notice was served on all offices on August 10 and a token demonstration held at 87 centres in the district. Conventions had also been held at 75 grama panchayats, Kozhikode Corporation, and Vadakara and Koyilandy taluks.


Civilian defence workers to join September 2 strike-AIDEF Gen Secy C SRIKUMAR

MUMBAI: The civilian workforce of 41 defence ordnance factories, 52 DRDO labs, naval dockyards, military engineering services as well as defence workshops and depots, have extended their support for the September 2 national strike.

However, the RSS-affiliated trade union Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh, which is one of the largest trade unions, pulled out of the nationwide strike on Saturday and pressed for a review of the strike call as well as to give the government six months to deliver on its assurances.

"The All-India Defence Employees' Federation and its affiliated unions have already served a strike notice to the government on August 14 and we will join the September 2 national strike," All-India Defence Employees' Federation general secretary C Srikumar said in a statement here today.

The demands civilian defence employees' demands are withdrawal of 49 per cent FDI in defence production and research, withdrawal of the government decision to privatise defence production, withdrawal of the National Pension Scheme rolled out since January 1, 2004, as well as withdrawal of arbitrary revision of labour laws, among others.

They are also opposed to regularisation of contract as well as casual labourers in the government sector in general, especially in the defence segment, regular functioning of the joint consultative machinery of central government employees, and implementation of court judgments in service matters, Srikumar said.

The federation has appealed to unions to participate en masse in the forthcoming day-long strike to protest against planned labour reforms by the Modi government and also against the privatisation of defence production, research and other activities, he said.

Meanwhile, ten other central trade unions said that the BMS' "political" decision would have minimal impact on the planned strike.

While 11 central trade unions had given a strike call to protest against proposed changes in various labour laws, the BMS decided to pull out on Saturday and favoured giving more time to the government in the wake of assurances given during a meeting with a group of senior ministers.

The unions said in a joint statement that nothing transpired in concrete terms after their leaders met the group of ministers headed by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley last week.


Don't tell PM Modi your 'Mann Ki Baat', govt employees warned

All central government employees, including officials of Army and para military forces, were warned of "action" on Monday if they raise service matters related grievances to the Prime Minister, directly. Warning employees, the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said such submission of representations directly to other authorities by-passing the prescribed channel of communication, has to be viewed seriously and appropriate disciplinary action should be taken against those who violate these.

As per these instructions, wherever a government servant wishes to press a claim or to seek redressal of a grievance, the proper course for him is to address his immediate official superior, or head of his office, or such other authority at the appropriate level who is competent to deal with the matter in the organisation. Writing to higher authorities, can rightly be treated as an unbecoming conduct, it said in a directive.

"In spite of these instructions, it has been observed that government servants including officers and officials of para military forces and Army personnel continue to represent directly to the Prime Minister, Minister, Secretary (Personnel) and other higher authorities, directly," the DoPT said.

It is reiterated that the existing instructions may be brought to the notice of all government servants including officials of para military forces and members of armed forces and "action taken against those who violate these instructions", it said. The forms of communication also include e-mails or raising it through public grievances portal etc, the DoPT said.

The DoPT has also reminded the employees of the government's directive prohibiting them from bringing outside influence in respect of matter pertaining to his service matter. "Representation by relatives of government servant is also treated as outside influence," it said. There are about 48 lakh central government employees.
